    If you stay at a Disney hotel do you have to book Through Disney to travel from the airport on the magical express?

    Hi Sharon!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I actually have recent experience with a trip my family just took this past January, so I'm certainly glad to help!

    One of my favorite benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is Disney's Magical Express transportation from the Orlando Airport to your hotel. You do not have to have booked directly through Disney to access this service. You will need to make sure that you make a reservation for it though. If you booked with a third party, like Expedia or Travelocity, you will need to get your Disney reservation number. Often when they send you a confirmation email it will be the confirmation number attached to their system, you will need the Disney specific confirmation number. Usually a quick call to the third party customer service is all that's needed for them provide this to you. If you have difficulty, Disney can usually pull this up with your resort and name, but in the past I obtained it from the third party directly.

    Once you have this confirmation number, you can book Disney's Magical Express online or by calling 407-939-1936. They will first ask for your hotel reservation confirmation number then they'll ask for your flight information to reserve your spot so make sure to have this handy!

    Please let me know if you have any other questions before your trip.
